I can vividly recall the first day I stepped into a gym. I was a 12 year old boy with big dreams of playing in the NFL.
I was excited but unsure what to do. So, I walk up to a trainer and say “hey, I just signed up and need some help. Could you show me the best exercises to develop my triceps” (I was convinced at the time that strong triceps would help me throw a football farther). He gave me a strange look then showed me the basic movements for tricep isolation. I started practicing and spent the next 6 hours maxing out on triceps push-downs… the iron bug bit me hard that day. I am 24 now and haven’t slowed down since. I joined the gym with the intention of getting stronger for football. Little did I perceive the impact it would have on life. Over the years, I have noticed many improvements that correlated nicely with how consistent I was in working out. And so I decided to write this short article to list just two of these benefits. Hope you enjoy and get motivated.
